Top 10 Most Underused Techniques in MMA

Undoubtedly one of the best aspects of MMA is the sheer variety of techniques that fighters can use during a match and this is what makes it so exciting and different from every other combat sport.

There are dozens of submissions and strikes that can end a fight and some of them have repeatedly been proven effective time and again.

However, there are several good moves that aren’t as widely used by fighters yet are still significant in their ability to cause damage or make the situation more favorable for one of the combatants.

My criterion of inclusion for each maneuver listed here was the move’s efficiency, ability to end a fight or improve position, relative effectiveness, degree of difficulty, and general practicality in a given situation.

For the more unorthodox tactics I tried to give a bit of background on the move’s history and specifications.

I also made sure to provide concrete examples of each techniques previous application in MMA so as to justify my argument for including it.

Of course, I am in no position to be telling professional fighters what they should or shouldn’t be doing in a match.

I just feel that some moves are unnecessarily overlooked in favor of flashier or battle-tested techniques and hope that perhaps a few of these abilities will be used more often in future competition.

But I have already said too much. Let us proceed to the list.
